Entrepreneurship education is at the heart of creating a workforce for tomorrow that will drive growth and prosperity for individuals, communities and the economy. Today’s school students face an unknowable future, with the possibility of multiple careers in their lifetimes, often in jobs that haven’t yet been imagined or invented. This provision offers them the opportunity to develop skills, ambition and adaptability to seize those opportunities whether as employees or as entrepreneurs.The most fundamental reason for thinking about entrepreneurship at the grass roots is to find sustainable solutions to overcoming the injustices of poverty, which is evidenced by malnutrition, low life expectancy, indifferent educational attainment, poor access to water, inadequate healthcare and exclusion from the benefits of economic and technological progress. The arguments are well rehearsed and supported in many academic and policy documents, and they are highlighted by the UN Millennium Development Goals.
